Mexican wants to play in Chelsea first team
The Mexican left London last summer for Spanish Segunda side CE Sabadell and has performed well during his loan spell with the club.
The 21-year-old claims Chelsea have been monitoring his performances and is confident he can impress the club’s scouts and earn a return to Stamford Bridge, targeting a place in the Blues’ first team.
Davila is enjoying his football in Spain but hopes a return to London will be on the cards at the end of the season.
“There’s a Chelsea rep who comes every 15 days to watch my home games,” Davila told Goal.com.
“Three weeks ago, the head scout came to watch the match against Barcelona B. They’re paying attention, watching my matches and tell me when they observe something in my game.
“They let me know when they think I should improve certain aspects so I can keep growing. That gives me confidence so I can be better every time.
“I feel great right now, I’m recovering from a broken hand I sustained a couple of weeks ago, but I feel happy, I think I’ve gotten a lot better; this time in my career has served me in order to grow as a player.”
The attacking midfielder moved to Chelsea from Chivas in 2011 and is currently out on his second loan spell after spending his first season on loan in the Netherlands with Vitesse Arnhem.
However, the youngster failed to make an impression during a disappointing period in the Eredivisie, making just three appearances.
But Davila claims he has felt more at home in Spain and this has been reflected in his improved performances on the pitch.
He continued: “In the Netherlands the language and the weather, it takes you about six or seven months, then you adapt, and it serves you to get into the rhythm and speed of European football.
“When I came to Spain I felt better, more adapted. Coming here was easier, I liked it.”
While eager to turn out for the Chelsea first team, the Mexican is aware of the steps he will need to take to prove his worth.
Davila claims he is patient enough to follow the plan the Blues have outlined for him and has accepted that the loan spells will benefit his development as a player.
“I’m going through the process that they’ve set out for me,” Davila said. “They want me to develop for two, maybe three years on loan.
“They’ve told me that being at a club like Chelsea is adapting to circumstances, growth, loan spells, learning abroad and being a player who wants to reach the top. When Chelsea tells me that it’s convenient for me to go back, I will, and I hope I get to play with the first team soon.”
